The 2015 Oscar nominees were announced early Thuesday morning. There were a few surprises, but as SCPR's The Frame host John Horn says, not a single person of color was nominated in any acting category. This is, according to Horn's calculation, the whitest Oscars in 16 years.
While the civil rights story "Selma" was nominated for Best Picture, it failed to garner any other significant nominations.
Horn noted, at least the Academy was welcoming to two very experimental films, "Birdman" and "Boyhood." Still, he says, the years of complaining about lack of diversity in Hollywood seem to be having little impact on the voting members of the Academy.
